Except I had already done an update since committing--see below.

I have re-read it a few times and I still do not see how it covers my case as written. Note again the order of my operations:

Svn update -> rev. 1000

-- At this point, there should be no "mixed revisions", correct?

Svn merge from branch

-- So now are there mixed revisions? The FAQ says commits may cause mixed revisions. It does not say other operations such as merges may do this. If merges give you mixed revisions, it would help to explain that in the FAQ, because I would expect that "mixed revisions" applies to your working base, and that merging leaves your working base alone and only changes your working copy. (I hope I got the terminology correct there.)

Svn commit: failure

-- At this point, svn has failed for me. The only operation I have done since updating is a merge, so presumably the merge must be the source of the trouble. I just, again, don't see any explanation for this in the FAQ.

Svn update -> rev. 1000
Svn commit: succeed

-- So yes, the instructions for dealing with mixed revisions solved the problem, they just do not seem to apply as they are currently written.
